Events Activation and Management

Successful event management requires the right mix of planning, production, promotion and participation. As experienced event organizers managing community-level, national and international events, we turn event ‘woes to wows’.

Impactful events catering to a variety of stakeholders are possible only through a coherent flow of strategy, planning and execution up until the event day. We take pride in managing events end-to-end from programming and theming to design, mounting, event day management and reporting. Through the experience of organizing 100+ events of varying sizes, from technical workshops to hi-level forums and international summits, we have built a strong network of media and content partners, experts, suppliers and event day staff across South and SE Asia.

Our commitment is to provide the right mix of planning, production, promotion and participation to advance the objective of best practice exchange through events.

Our work manifests as:

Program Production
Event Theming and Design
Event Marketing
Event Day Management
Event Reporting
